This flag is listed under number 16 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [eba94] as: «Madeira (Island province) - Portugal».

The flag of the autonomous region of Madeira is to be seen everywhere. Most flags I have seen in Madeira are plastic, not cloth. On boats, it is always associated with the Portuguese national flag. The coat of arms of the region has the same pattern (with apparently the central stripe slightly larger than the other ones) and is shown on buildings, buses, documents etc.

As in Brazil, there are in Madeira some samba schools, each with it’s own flag.
